10:16 AM: They’re talking right now about HD release of Akira. Nothing particularly interesting so far.
10:19 AM: ImaginAsian TV ad
10:21 AM: Fuse channel. Why are they using a Tenacious D song?

10:22 AM: New title announcements. Shounen Onmyouji (7/10)
10:28 AM: Saiunkoku (August 28). These actually are all previously announced licenses, I think.
10:31 AM: Hellsing Ultimate. I remember when they were showing this last year or two years ago at Otakon…
10:33 AM: Zero no Tsukaima (aka The Familiar of Zero, officially). Yay! My guilty pleasure of 2006. The trailer is awfully cheesy, though. I mean REALLY cheesy. They actually renamed the school headmaster Gandalf?? Panelists called “Harry Potter as made by the creators of Tenchi Muyo,” which is not too far off, actually.
10:38 AM: First License announcement. It’s the Shana OAV.
10:40 AM: New title #2: Seirei no Moribito. I think this was announced already.
